Ideas are increasingly presented to us in a binary format, however in a living system as complex as our globally connected world, problems and solutions rarely fall neatly into an either/or format.

    Open to all media and processes including digital and conventional painting and drawing, fibers, clays, recycled materials, mixed media and assemblage. All electronic media must be self-contained and self-running.

    Mr. Fisher was a longtime supporter of youth athletic programs, specifically basketball. The piece should also include #BradyStrong (this is the hashtag that the City embraced during Mr. Fisher’s battle with cancer).

    Budget: up to $10,000

    Safety Harbor Baranoff Park: Heart of the Community - The free-standing sculpture will honor the generosity of Mr. George Weiss.

    Parks and Mr. Weiss are the “heart of the community” in Safety Harbor. To honor Mr. Weiss, the piece should include a heart or hands holding a heart.

    Budget: up to $15,000

    Since 2004, Embracing Our Differences has used the power of art and prose to promote diversity. The centerpiece of Embracing Our Differences is an outdoor juried art exhibit at Bayfront Park in downtown Sarasota featuring 50 billboard size images (12.5 feet by 16 feet) created by local, national and international artists and writers.

    Embracing Our Differences invites you to participate in creating a world where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. Become a part of this exciting change through your visual art submission to the annual international juried competition. The statements accompanying each artwork are also vital and provide insight into our common humanity—as well as the differences that make us all unique.

    The winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message. Awards are given for “Best-in-Show Adult,” “Best-in-Show Student,” and “People’s Choice” categories, with the last chosen by visitors to the exhibit. Adult winners each receive $1,000; students receive $1,000 with $500 to be directed to the student and $500 to their school’s art program, if they worked under the direction of an educator.

    Artists are invited to submit work – existing or conceptual – for the 5th annual Sculpture on the Lawn exhibition, an outdoor display at the entrance to the Orange County Administration Center (201 S. Rosalind Ave.) in the heart of downtown Orlando, where works are visible to approximately 10,000 people daily.

    Sculpture on the Lawn is open to experienced professional sculptors as well as students and emerging artists who specialize in the design, construction and installation of outdoor sculptures. Up to three sculptures will be selected for display from October 2019 to September 2020. One of the sculptures will be selected from a student or emerging artist, if suitable.

    Selection Criteria: The three main considerations are creativity, site appropriateness and durability. Images of finished works and conceptual drawings can be submitted. If the proposed project is not a finished work, artists need to provide information to assure the Selection Panel of what it will look like and that it will be completed and installed as designed.

    Artist Responsibilities: Selected artists must transport the artwork to the site on the specified date and install it with minimal assistance, then remove the artwork after the exhibition.

    Sites and Safety: While artistic quality is very important, works will be reviewed for durability, safety and appropriateness to the site. Artworks must be structurally sound and able to withstand a hot, humid outdoor environment with seasonal heavy rains and hurricane-force winds, in a largely unsupervised area that is not protected from weather or curious viewers. Avoiding potential problems such as rust and fading should be considered.

    Installation: Orange County provides 12-by-12-foot concrete pads. Sculptures must be firmly secured to the pads.

    Selection Panel: Members of the Orange County Arts & Cultural Affairs Public Art Review Board will make the selections.

    Honorarium: Each artist will be awarded $3,500 as a fee for the annual loan of the artwork and to help offset any necessary transportation, installation and housing costs. A payment of $3,000 will be made upon installation and processing of required paperwork, and $500 will be paid upon removal.

    Insurance: Orange County will insure the artwork up to its stated value or $50,000, whichever is less, for theft or major vandalism. The artist will be responsible for any repairs needed due to fabrication defects or reasonable wear and tear of the object in a public location.

    Size: There is a 6-foot minimum height preference. The sky is the limit for the maximum height.

    Sales: Sales of the works will be encouraged and promoted. Any sales inquiries will be forwarded to the artist or designated agent. No commission will be charged. Sculptures must remain on site until September 2020.

    Timeline:
    - Proposals due: July 1 at midnight
    - Notification of acceptance: July 12
    - Installation time frame: October 1 to 12, 2019
    - Sculpture on the Lawn Opening Reception: October 21, 2019, 5:30-6:30 p.m.

  • Open Call for Singers - One City Chorus
    September 21, 2018
    St. Petersburg's award-winning One City Chorus was founded with the belief that singing in a group builds community and leads to better understanding.

    We encourage people of all races, cultures, creeds and communities to sing with us. Everyone is welcome - we have no auditions.

    We have a great season planned. We’ll once again be singing songs with themes about social justice, civil rights, and diversity – songs like Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On”, Stevie Wonder’s “Higher Ground”, “Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way”, the Doobie Brothers’ “Takin’ It to the Streets”, Neil Diamond’s “America”, U2’s “In the Name of Love” and other wonderful songs by less-widely-known artists.

    We’ll be singing a concert in the circular Sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Clearwater on December 1, and we’ll be singing again at St. Pete’s First Night celebrations on December 31 at the United Methodist Church. On February 17 is our annual concert at the Palladium Theater.

    Rehearsals are every Monday at 7 p.m. at the Dr. Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum –2240 9th Ave. S. in St. Petersburg.

    We ask that our singers contribute $20/year to help defray some of our costs. We sing all of our songs “off-book” without sheet music and we have rehearsal recordings of all the parts online. This helps folks who don’t read music well to learn their parts, and it also helps people who have joined us later in the year to catch up.

    For more information, visit our website at onecitychorus.org.

  • Grants for Student Artists
    March 27, 2018
    FUNDING FUTURES 
    STUDENT ARTS OPPORTUNITY GRANT PROGRAM

    Talented students who aspire to be exceptional musicians, actors or visual artists are often faced with financial need that prevents them from pursuing a career in an artistic field after school or during the summer.

    A small grant award can make a world of difference to a student who otherwise would not have the chance to succeed in his or her arts field.

    The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance is committed to supporting young talent, just as we support ACE, Arts for a Complete Education, for Pinellas County arts education in public schools.

    Who is eligible: Any artist 10-18 in the categories of dance, cinematic arts, jazz, music, digital arts, photography, theater, visual arts and voice.   Students must be residents of Pinellas County.  Funds are awarded to arts program organizations located in St. Petersburg only.  Funds may be used for:
    • Tuition for summer arts programs
    • Musical instruments rental, purchase or repair
    • Dance shoes, music books and arts supplies
    • Individual instruction or adult master class tuition
    How it Works
    Individuals may nominate students for an after-school, weekend or summer program using our Funding Futures application.  Non-profit organizations may nominate students as well for their programs.

    We ask that you nominate students with financial need who could not otherwise participate in the program. 

    For an application and more information, please email ace@stpeteartsalliance.org.

    You Can Donate to Funding Futures Funding Futures is supported 100% by donations.

    The St. Petersburg Arts Alliance has awarded over $10,000 to 16 students in our first year.  Help make a difference in a child's life.  Donate today HERE.
